A nice pale ale overall. Pours a bright orange with a light white head. Smells like tropical fruit. Taste has fruit and lots of citrus with a slightly hoppy finish. Had on tap at Billcos.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap. Pours clear butterscotch with a small white head and good lacing. Unfortunately, that was the high point. Aroma is earthy, feet, must, mushrooms, touch of vomit. Flavor is nowhere near that bad, but not good either - lightly sweet, light bitter. Medium body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the RateBeer Gallery event in SF. Pours orange-tinged gold with a fluffy off-white head. Pale malt is the dominant note, with some mild citrus from the hops. Kinda just malty, bland and boring.

This beer comes right from witches brew
Smells mushroom, dirty feet and goop
It stands up to it’s name: a screw
Tastes awful: would go well with poop

12 ounce sample at Flavor in Santa Rosa. Very floral hop aroma with a moderate sweet character, too. Very perfumey. Not sure if that is the hop, or attributable to some soap in the the glass. Transparent yellow body with a strong, medium white head present, and great lacing. Starts with some floral sweetness, before a light biscuit maltiness takes over Finishes with an herbal, sharp hop bitterness. Almost astringent. I am not sure what the ABV is, but it seems a little hot. Quite bitter. Seems a little lager-ish. Is this a super hoppy lager?

Misspent Youth had a potent hoppiness turned funky pine flavor. Earthy, that’s a good word for it. The smell was a little cat-littery too. It wasn’t as smooth as I’d expect out of an APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ok aroma, grassy, sourdough, lemon. Clean brownish orange. Nice head and lace. Bitter flavor. Lite body, smooth oily mouthfeel, bitter finish. It’s fine, like a lot of other apa’s out there. Appearance was best part. Had nice fluffy head some clinging lace. Reminds me of pisgah or northampton pale ales.

God, I love Moonlight Brewing Co! This pours golden with an amazing white head. The aroma is very hoppy with some sweet notes of tropical fruit, and a bit of crackery malt. The flavor is outstanding with a perfect dry, hoppy palate and crackery malt followed by some earthy eucalyptus and tropical fruit. Finish is complex and full of spicy hops. Loved it.
